Field Trip: Hall Museum of Minerals, La Center, Washington

May 4, 2013, we will be having a field trip to the Hall Museum of Minerals in La Center, Washington.

The field trip includes a tour of the museum and potluck, so bring food to share with everyone.

We will be meeting at the Forest Grove Senior and Community Center in Forest Grove, Oregon, and leaving by 9:15AM. We expect to arrive at the museum at 10:30AM if you are driving on your own. Let’s try to carpool to make this more fun.

The museum houses more than 40 years of collecting by Richard and Bernice Hall. They have an amazingly diverse collection of rock slabs, petrified wood, crystals, and polished slabs, spheres, and even rock carvings.

Richard and Bernice Hall have won hundreds of awards for their work in rock collecting and exhibits.

Richard has promised a tour of his machine shops, demonstrating how to cut, drill, polish, sand, grind, and do everything to various rocks and minerals.

This is a very special treat and we look forward to having a fun and educational day.

If you want to come with us, please contact us and let us know so we have an estimate of how many will be attending.
